Building Media Player


#1

So i want to assemble a portable media player.  I will transfer my ripped DVD’s from my computer to an external drive and play them back through the media player. 

I dont care about dvd chapters.

I dont want lag or stutter problems when playing back via TV

I do want allot of HD space

I dont want a hard drive that will burn out.

I dont want to have to keep it connected to the internet to just play back movies from the hdd on the tv.

Im thinking WD TV Live HD Media Player Model Number: WDBAAN0000NBK-NESN

And 2TB WD Elements Desktop Model: WDBAAU0020HBK

Does this sound like a good combo?

Thank you for reading.

Should be no problem, the HDD is on the compatible list.
